What is a Backlink?

And why do I need them for my website?

A backlink is defined as any hyperlink that is placed from an external site to your website.

Backlinks are vital to website’s rank in the search engines, they are also can be a means of generating a continual stream of quality niche traffic to your website from other website in your specific industry.

Our suggested strategy plan in building your website’s backlinks is to focus more on quality of the website’s you are looking to receive links from and not so much on the quanity of links you are optaining.

One Way linking is defined as receiving a link from an external website without giving a return link back. One Way links are the most sought after type of links because they carry the most ranking weight in the search engines result from big 3 Google, yahoo and Bing.

Here are a few ways of creating one-way links:
• Posting articles with your anchor text keywords embeded and submitting them to article directories.
• Posting Press Releases with your anchor text keywords embeded and submitting them to PR submissions directories.
• Buying text links back to your site from industry specific high ranking websites.
• Post in forums that allow hyperlinking with out the “No-Follow” tags.
• Post comments in blogs that allow hyperlinking with out the “No-Follow” tags.
• Submit your website to FREE Directories use keywords in your Title to link back.

You can view the number of backlink your site has on record in each of the top search engines by using tools they have developed for specifically for checking and displaying the number of backlinks on record.

Type these url in the address bar of the respected search engines

Google Backlinks:
link:www.yoursite.com

Yahoo Backlinks:
linkdomain:www.yoursite.com

Bing Backlinks:
linkfromdomain:www.yoursite.com

Remember, not all backlinks are counted, so even if you know there is external link coming into your site.

From Matt Cutts head of Google’s Webspam team:

“Do not assume just because you see a backlink that it’s carrying weight. Sometime in the next year, someone will say “But I saw an insert-link-fad-here backlink show up in Google’s backlink tool, so it must count. Right?” And then I’ll point them back here, where I say do not assume just because you see a backlink that it’s carrying weight.”

Google understands the importance of linking and has posted specific guideline rules in their webmaster tools, that will help with your overall link building scheme.

Creating to many backlinks could accually hurt your site by lowering your site’s Google reputation, just realize that Google continues to develops spam triggers that are in place to knock down or out sites of the rankings that push the envelope.
